NCQA Health Equity Accreditation provides a comprehensive framework that organizations can use to achieve health equity goals, deliver culturally and linguistically appropriate services and reduce disparities. Organizations that better understand their patients’ needs can better address possible health issues and provide preventive care. The former Multicultural Health Care (MHC) Distinction program has transformed into Health Equity Accreditation.
Health Equity Accreditation Plus helps health care organizations establish processes and cross-sector partnerships that identify and address social risk factors in their communities and the social needs of the people they serve. Health Equity Accreditation Plus builds on NCQA’s recently launched Health Equity Accreditation program by helping organizations identify and close care gaps.
